Abstract

The study aims to determine SARS-CoV-2 RNA in sewage of Cancun wastewater treatment plants, the main touristic destination of Mexico, and to estimate the infected persons during the sampling period. SARS-CoV-2 RNA traces was detected in the inlet of the five plants during almost all the sampling months. However, there is no presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA traces in the effluent of the five WWTPs during the study period. ANOVA analysis showed differences in the concentrations of RNA traces of SARS-CoV-2 between the sample dates, but no differences were found from one WWTP to another. Estimated infected individuals by Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulation are higher (between 77% and 91%) than the cases reported by the health authority. Wastewater monitoring and the estimation of infected individuals are a helpful tool, because estimation provides early warning signs on how broadly SARS-CoV-2 is circulating in the city, and led to the authorities to take measures wisely.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 April 2023.
All research outputs
#8,595,406
of 26,202,139 outputs
Outputs from Water Environment Research (10614303)
#177
of 1,515 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#147,565
of 419,105 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Water Environment Research (10614303)
#2
of 10 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 26,202,139 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 66th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,515 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.0. This one has done well, scoring higher than 87% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 419,105 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 64% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 10 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 8 of them.
